The great people over at D’Addario have created a series of percussion maintenance videos to help you care for your instruments.

On this page, we have brought together their CORE videos on percussion. Use the arrows on the left and right sides of the video panel to learn how to tune a bass, snare, or tom drum. You can also learn how to change snare wire, how to choose a drum stick, and a lot more.

Percussion not your thing? Check out their CORE tips and tutorials for GUITAR & BASS, ORCHESTRAL INSTRUMENTS, and WOODWINDS.
